Fire Burns at Sioux City Animal Rendering Plant

 Firefighters were called to the Bridgeport Industrial complex this morning for a fire in the 1900 block of Murray Street.

A little after 9:00 am a fire broke out at the Darling International animal rendering plant.

Firefighters say employees were using torches to cut metal when sparks ignited animal fat that had built up on the walls.

The fire was quickly put out and the building received minor damage.

No injuries were reported.
